Abstract

Research was conducted in July 2013 as part of an ethnobotany research-training course in Georgia (საქართველო). After obtaining prior informed consent for interviews and photographs, semi-structured interviews were conducted with participants in local villages. Images were taken of the physical environment (soils, water features, and other geographical context elements), biological environment (parts of plants used, whole plants, animals, ecosystems, landscapes), and cultural environment (artifacts, villages, crop fields, and other anthropogenic landscapes, individuals and groups interacting with each other or the researchers, and people conducting daily tasks of life). Most of the photographs were taken opportunistically and only Figures 79-81 were “staged.”
